Home / Marine Insurance / Boat Dealers Insurance

There are more registered boats in Florida than any other state in the U.S., nearly one million at last count! Not surprisingly, there are also more boat dealers in the Sunshine State than any other since demand is constant. Of course, risk is ever present. Vessels of any kind can sustain damage during maintenance, storage, sea trials, or natural disasters like hurricanes. To protect your entire inventory, specialized insurance policies are available at competitive prices.

What to look for?

Determining the level of coverage your boat dealership requires is an issue that is best left to professionals. Fluctuations in inventory can result in the boat dealer paying for coverage they may never use.  Additionally, if the limits aren’t adequate during peak inventory levels, the boat dealer may find themselves with losses that are not covered by the carrier. An experienced insurance agent will consider these factors and will work with the underwriter to obtain appropriate pricing and coverage limits. 

Basic coverage

At a minimum, a boat dealer must acquire General Liability coverage, which protects their business against alleged bodily injury and property damage. Accidents can occur on the water or in the actual boatyard.

Additional coverage is required for inventory, sea trials, Jones Act, pollution, and numerous other exposures that will create a custom commercial marine policy.
